Update on 30 Apr 2018
INTERCARGO has a database of ship-terminal interface (negative) issues, based on the direct feedback from masters of bulk carriers of INTERCARGO member’s fleet.
On 30 Apr 2018, the database has entries of 364 ports in 76 countries/regions. The entries record following aspects of negative experiences of bulk carriers:
- Inadequate port reception facilities
- Cargo shortage,
- Ports and corruption behaviour of authority officials
- Crew shore leave,
- Depth of berth,
- Length of berth,
Through years of effort, the masters of our bulk carriers have shared their experiences of ship-terminal interface by usng the attached Reporting Form, v.5.1. Members will find it useful when they make voyage plan of their fleet.
